Douglas, Isle of Man - March 19, 2008
PokerStars.net, the world's largest online poker site, announced the launch of their WSOP satellite tournaments, where players can win prize packages worth $12,500.
PokerStars qualifiers who make it to the final table at the WSOP Main Event will win an automatic cash bonus, including a cool million for bringing home the Main Event trophy. Finish second, get a $400,000 bonus. Finish in third place, get $300,000. Finish in fourth-fifth or sixth-ninth and get $200,000 or $100,000 respectively. Cash bonuses of up to $50,000 also are available if a sponsored player makes it to a WSOP "TV table."
PokerStars will be sending over 1,000 players to the Main Event. Registered users can test their skills to win a ticket to the "Big Dance" for free at PokerStars.net.
The full prize package also includes:

PokerStars sends more players to the Main Event than any other site. Since 2002, over 3,600 qualifiers have won a seat by traveling the satellite route. In 2006, PokerStars qualifier Greg Raymer also went on to win the championship and $5 million.
